We’re wrapping up our feature on Chanel Summer Collection with lips! There is no such thing as too much lipgloss or lipstick… right?
Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour just won the Beauty Insider’s Choice Award from CEW for best lip product over $15. What can I say about this lipstick that the award doesn’t say for itself? This is a major award. With it’s soft rose scent and creamy formula, lipstick doesn’t get much better than this.
My favorite out of all the lip products is the lipgloss. The shades in the collection are gorgeous, Sundress is pictured to the right. Chanel’s Llevres Scintillantes Glossimer for this collection comes in Sundress, a soft sparkling rose; Sarong, a mauve; Coral Reef, a melon; Summer Plum, a plum bronze; and Seashell, a transparent opal. If the colors aren’t enough to reel you in, the formula will be. It’s what you have come to expect in a gloss. It’s not sticky, it’s long lasting, the consistency is just right and it’s moisturizing. From time to time, I seem to forget I’m wearing lipgloss and just rub my lips together thinking I have lip balm on. There’s also a limited edition Brillant Lumiere Fluorscent in Mango that was released. This is my absolute favorite out of all of these glosses. While the color may look a little alarming, this gloss is perfect for enhancing your lips natural color.
I like to think of Chanel’s Aqualumierre Sheer Colour Lipshine as a swanky tinted lip balm. It’s not a richly pigmented lip product. As the name suggests, it’s a little on the sheer side but it still provides a nice amount of color with just the right consistency. It’s formulated to be protect your lips from the elements with SPF 15 for UVA/UVB protection, vitamin E for comfort and vitamin B for moisture. The summer collection is introducing two new shades: Montego, a rich rose; and Jamaica, a fresh peach.
